On January 1, 2021, the Brexit, that is, the exit of the United Kingdom from the European Union, was ratified with minimal agreement.
This agreement stipulates the rules for the exchange of goods between the European Union and the United Kingdom.
One of the constraints concerns the management of the different VAT below the threshold of £135 and above.

Automatically, the module will identify the country United Kingdom in your PrestaShop configuration and make it evolve so that it can accept states, so that these states can be added during the creation of the address by the customer.

The module also checks the presence of the Pound Sterling and will accompany you if this is not the case.
It also tests the presence of a tax applied on the United Kingdom, since below £135 it is necessary to apply the English VAT called VAT UK 20% on fresh installations of PrestaShop or when you import the tax localization pack for the United Kingdom.
Afterward, the module will manage in real time the amount of orders to the United Kingdom to apply VAT or not.
